Hoppy greetings, crafty friends! Today I am celebrating the new digi stamp release (free digi stamps!) by Useless Trinkets with a hop! I love the quirky characters and black humor that Jessa brings to her creations and I had a blast creating with the new images. You should have come here from Gloria – and if not, no worries. I have the entire list at the end of this blog post!
I had to keep my cards rather simple since all of my crafty stuff is packed away already – when you’re reading this today (Sunday) I am actually in a moving van, driving across the country. So, for that reason, I focused on coloring instead of fancy die-cutting or other extravaganzas. As you can see, you can still create great cards with minimal supplies. For my first card, I used the chisel tip of my Copic Sketch marker to create a wonky background pattern on my card base before mounting my panel on top. A few mini iridescent stars and gold star sequins also helped to spice up the project.
My second card was also kept very simple; I even used the same colors with the only difference being that I applied them the hair of the unicorn instead of the egg. I mounted the piece on some gold paper, trimmed it so it would only show a thin border, and mounted in on a card base.
My last project also focused mainly on the Copic coloring which I kept simple – you can see a version of this monster colored in this video here. I used my foam roll of tape to trace the rounded bottom shape of this panel and fussy cut it with my scissors before mounting it on a blue card base to which I added a few white dots and some Stardust sparkle.
I hope you enjoyed the projects! If you’d like the new images, please grab them on this page. They are completely free to use. And don’t forget to hop on to the rest of the talented ladies participating in this hop – they have some awesome inspiration for you!
